First where do we find this picture! 8-)
I would think the O rings should be OK, these fluids are designed not to
rot rubber and the types found today seem to be quite resilient. I think the
silicone fluid is less corrosive (wrong word but someone else must have the
one I want) as it does not seem to go black in use!
When you say the pistons were a little tight going through the O ring, was
it tight all the way or did it suddenly get easier, if it did you may have
cut the ring, ask me how I know!
